A beautifully performed tour de force by the two male leads and all supporting cast. A MUST for a serious movie person,
1 January 2001 | by (Pinehurst,North Carolina) – See all my reviews

Albert Finny and his co lead are superb,acting at its best!!!! A story and performance to remember. I think it fits the over 50-55 year old set best. Just wonderful entertainment with brilliant script. I will see it again...and again Dr G Catapano
